What Are the Advantages of Automatic Blinds?

Hunter Douglas offers a few different options on their motorized blinds and shades. It’s an attractive feature, particularly for rooms that have hard to reach windows, especially large or high windows, or skylights. The automation features available include things like temperature sensors that can close your window coverings during the hottest part of the day or open them in the winter to help warm the house when the sun is out. By controlling the sun’s warmth beaming through your windows, they can help lower your energy bills by affecting heating and cooling costs in the home.

The most obvious benefit is convenience. To adjust the louvers, open, or close your blinds, all it takes is the push of a button. Many customers with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and mobility issues find that having automated window coverings gives them more control and freedom to enjoy their homes. Customers with children or pets like the fact that operating their blinds with a remote control gives them the added safety and assurance that there aren’t dangerous cords to pose a choking hazard in the home.

Modern automated blinds don’t require rewiring in your house, and it’s surprisingly affordable. They can be controlled with a wall switch, a remote, or an app for your iPad, iPhone, or iPod that sends a signal over your home’s internet connection.
